police bust online clown threats in two parts of our area. >> one of those arrested was a 14-year-old from gloucester county. nbc 10's pamela osborne is live in washington township with more on that. pam? >> vai, authorities here in washington township are taking these threats very seriously. in fact, in the past few days, two teens have been arrested. a 13-year-old girl from bunker hill middle school in gloucester township was arrested for making threats against a specific student yesterday. her arrest comes after the weekend arrest of a 14-year-old washington township boy who also made threats posting pictures of clowns with weapons, warning kids that the clowns were coming and not to walk alone. some parents kept their kids home from school because of the posts. meanwhile in philly, a police investigation revealed a 13-year-old girl was behind similar threats to city schools. >> these two classmates decided to post this information on
instagram, threatening a couple of our local schools. again, it's certainly something that's not a laughing matter but she also indicated she didn't have intent to harm anyone. when doing this, this was a prank only. >> prampg or not, tnk or not,ç consequences are pretty serious. when i see you again at 6:30, i'll tell you what nearby burlington township is doing in light of threats made against the district there. for now, reporting live, i'm pamela osborne, nbc 10 news. 5:34. at the jersey shore, police in atlantic county are investigating a shooting that happened in a home. skyforce 10 was over the scene in ventnor. police say at least one person was shot after :00 last night. there's no word on the severity of the victim's injuries. we spoke with a witness who heard the shooting just outside his house.
>> what i heard was just a bunch of gunshots and then when i went outside, i just saw a bunch of sirens, it was kind of crazy. kind of worried me also. when i left my house, i saw people in bulletproof vests. which is a rarity in this area. >> there's also no word on motive at this time. now to decision 2016. hillary clinton will be in delaware county, talking to voters across pennsylvania about the importance of voter registration. >> nbc 10's monique braxton is live in haverford. >> secretary clinton's appearance here is timed to coincide with just one week left before the voter registration dead lane. her campaign is calling this a conversation with families. look at what we found overnight. this new quinnipiac poll has democrat clinton leading republican donald trump by four points. the score, 45-41. the poll's assistant director also says mrs. clinton is the leading contender among women. she isn't taking that for
granted. just as she did back in 2008 when she ran against president obama, now president obama, in the democratic primary. clinton appeared in haverford with her daughter, chelsea. well, today chelsea will be with her as well along with actress elhbeth banks. clinton will talk about supporting children and families and creating an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top. delaware county tells us voters have been switching parties since before the april primary. we're going to look at those numbers and tell you the significance, coming up in the next hour. live for now in haverford, monique braxton, nbc 10 news. also happening today in decision 2016, first lady michelle obama will hold a rally in charlotte to campaign for clinton. the first lady will lay out what's at stake in november and urge the people of north carolina to register to vote. 5:3. the philadelphia police department is going green. the department unveiled the

one woman said faith helped her cope. >> without god, the church and rachel and vineyard, i truly believe my life would be full of debilitating anger and depression. >> the program will help people get professional counseling and access to support groups associated with the church. criticsç say a plan to financed new jersey's transportation transit fund could bankrupt that state. members of the better choices coalition will rally at the new jersey statehouse at noon. the fund would be paid for by a 23 cent gas hike in new jersey. the sales tax would go gown from 7% to 6.6% by 2018. this deal still needs to passes both houses of the legislature. that vote will happen tomorrow. now your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> and as promised we're starting with that closer look at some of the rain we're seeing out there this morning. just starring to move into new jersey here. it's passing through south

we have spotty showers moving along. we just had a closer look at that. just right now tracking into mercer county here and then we do see that they're going to start to spottily move into parts of the suburbs, maybe isolated showers into philadelphia as well. it's not looking like a big soaker this morning. as this moves along through your morning hours, likely it will continue breaking apart. here's the look, hour by hour forecast shows us 6:30 in the morning, model has it breaking apart pretty much completely. spotty showers may continue along the shore through 1:30 in our afternoon hours. clouds still overhead. the clouds aren't going away today. you'll see a cloud/sun mix with sun across the region in and out throughout your afternoon and then a partly cloudy forecast into your evening as well. overnight and on into your wednesday. wednesday starts with some of those clouds still in place. a little thicker, farther along to the west. slowly warming temperatures is the next forecast to talk about, the next focus we should say as we move along. temperatures they'll bump up a
bit. yesterday was pretty nice, 76 degrees. the average is 71. today slightly below it, tomorrow right at it and back to the mid-70s, thursday into friday. now let's take a look at the spaghetti plots, different computer models showing us where hurricane matthew may move next. through tomorrow, we see it moving into the bahamas. the newç projected tracks are consistently edging near florida. this is a big concern because then they continue along through saturday, very consistent here. right up against the eastern coast. that continues up now showing a closer line through our area. that's on sunday. now, some models are skewing farther off to the east. that's something we'll have a close eye and continuing to update you. for now, here's your 10 day on 10, the forecast will include some chances of rain here. your saturday into sunday as a result of matthew. it's something we may need to adjust. otherwise, 70s in the forecast, dropping to the 60s as that system passes.
